Westridge Collection and Westshore Studio Tour 2017

The Westshore Studio Tour took place over the Mother’s Day weekend and showcased both artists from the Westshore area (Colwood, Langford, View Royal, Metchosin, and the Highlands) and also artists who were members at Coast Collective.  I wasn’t able to take part in the Studio Tour as my family was visiting Tofino and Ucluelet for a long weekend (a Mother’s day present to both me and my mother-in-law).  However, the Westridge Collection gallery turnover for May coincided with the Studio Tour, so I brought in two of my encaustic mosaics to be displayed so visitors from the tour would see them.

As stated on CC’s website: “The Westridge Gallery features the best works of our Associate Members. The collection is displayed in a section of our new gallery space and is one of the many opportunities that the Coast Collective Arts Centre offers the Associate Members to further the exposure of their artwork.”

After the Studio Tour ended, and I was back from Tofino, I snapped a few photos of the May display in the Westridge Collection.  I love seeing the different mediums that the Associate Members work in and I’m so glad that I found this artists’ collective – the caliber of the work is fantastic!  The changeover happens this weekend, so I can’t wait to see what will be shown next.
